You know what's better than being rescued by brave people?  Using modern communications and radar to prevent sailing into a storm in a 18th century replica boat and risking lives to begin with.  I am sure the Air Force pilots that risk their lives to give you all the information you need to get out of the way, appreciate being ignored.

I don't know why the Coast Guard is constantly mocked. I'd love to see just one of the people who dismiss them try the stunt described in TFA. While you're sitting at your desk doing signal intel, some guy is doing something like TFA. So STFU.

Calm down killer.


Yes, simmer down there hard charger.

I did just about everything I could to be horribly maimed/killed by the military (enlisted/deployed for route clearance as a combat engineer), but I have nothing but respect for the Coasties.

While most of the military is either training (most of the time) or deploying to combat (occasionally), the Coast Guard are  always doing their job.  If I had to pick a branch that I wanted to spend a career in, it would be the Coast Guard purely because their job has meaning beyond  a force in readiness 24/7.

And even better is that they can keep their sense of humor while doing that.

"All right, I'm saying it. Why is he even here? He's just a guy who landed a plane in a river to save his own ass. You want to be a real hero? Avoid the geese like all the other pilots do...Every. Single. Day!"


A smart man is one who can get out of a difficult situation. A wise man is one who knows how not to get into it.
